5 Beautiful Household Items That Are Difficult To Clean

When you selected, designed and decorated your home, you likely made sure it was filled with things that are beautiful to look at and pleasant to use. However, many of the most gorgeous and convenient household items are notoriously difficult to keep clean. Take a peek around your home. If you have any of these items, it may be time to enlist the help of a professional cleaning service.

Stainless steel appliances

Stainless steel appliances are a popular choice for high-end kitchens. Whether you are a professional chef or prefer takeout, stainless appliances create a luxe look when they are perfectly polished. The trouble is, stainless steel smudges easily and becomes covered with fingerprints each time you open the refrigerator or load the dishwasher. It’s also important to use the right cleaner to remove smudges without scratching the surface.

Large windows and blinds

Speaking of smudges, oversized windows are another spot in the home that are prone to smudges and fingerprints. Large windows are incredibly desirable because of the natural light and views they provide. But, taking in those views often means touching the window or opening glass doors, which leaves behind fingerprints. Window blinds, which provide privacy, also collect dust quickly. Though they add beauty and convenience to your home, oversized window and blinds can be time-consuming to clean.

White carpets and upholstery

Light and bright interiors are perfectly on trend right now. Not only do they feel luxurious, white or light-colored furnishings can make a space feel larger. But, white carpet and upholstery can be a magnet for stains. Even if you are careful and avoid spills, white furnishings can look dull or dingy over time. The good news is that it is possible to maintain the beauty of white furnishings for many years with the right cleaning methods and tools.

Tall ceilings with light fixtures or ceiling fans

Cathedral or raised ceilings help a home feel airy and spacious. Tall ceilings are one of the most sought-after features in high-end homes, but they do present some tricky cleaning challenges. Light fixtures and ceiling fans gather dust and require frequent cleaning, but they may not be reachable with a simple stepladder. For the sake of safety, it may be best to leave cleaning tall ceilings to the pros.

Fine art

Whether you collect paintings, sculpture or antiquities, art brings a great deal of joy and beauty to your home. It is important that your home is full of things you enjoy looking at, but those objects do require appropriate cleaning. Fine art can be delicate and easily damaged, so it is best to enjoy looking at it and to leave the cleaning to the professionals.
